A decorative storage box with lid is one of those small décor items that’s both stylish and practical. Use it in any room to create a pretty vignette, where you can also keep small items stored out of sight. Storage boxes with lids are particularly good as bathroom accessories.
Your box could be a transparent glass jar, or something solid and opaque. A glass jar should be used to store items that you don’t mind being seen, such as cotton balls in pastel hues. Or a collection of soaps, toiletry sachets or seashells.
In a setting with contemporary furniture – whether that’s an office, bedroom or bathroom – an angular box, rather than a rounded one, will work well. For example, in a bathroom with a black-and-white colour scheme, go for a bold, Italian-style box with lid in gun-metal stone with silver edging. Complete the look with other dark receptacles, bathroom tumblers and other bathroom accessories. In a more romantic-looking bathroom, go for a rounded box with lid for something beautiful and functional. Use it for storing cotton balls, ear-buds, jewellery or other odds and ends.
To style your decorative storage box with lid, place it on a display tray with other decorative items to complete your contemporary furniture look. Think a small round vase of fresh-cut flowers, beautiful tea-light holders, and other precious objets d‘art. Play with scale by pairing your box with lid with another in an identical style but of a different size.
